The shape of GP PAPS X, especially the design of the switch, comes from the design of GP Piccolo v2.5 which circulates from the December of 2012, while the prototypes had been made on October 2012. The GP PAPS X as a project with extension tubes and this button designed on August of 2012, after the discontinuation of GP PAPS v2 and GP Piccolo v2. In that period we decided to make a 16 mm, a 17 mm and a 23 mm version of this switch. The first 2 are known as GP piccolo v2.5 and GP Piccolo v3. Whatever we create is organically connected with the rest of our GP Series mods in matters of design, materials, versions, shapes, functions, characteristics, etc.
The switch follows the design of the GP Piccolo v2.5, improved and modified to work without plastic insulator, only one spring and with an extreme precise machining applied according to schematics with 0,01-0,02 mm tolerance in the moving parts, something that wasn't possible for the GP Piccolo. It took us over 9 months to achieve that and we changed many CNC shops.
